Isaiah 40: 3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (day of atonement) there is a period of reflection and repentence called the "days of Awe" Since we know we have been forgiven in receiving Jesus as our personal saviour and our names are now in the book of Life... as Jesus said it is always a good time to give thanks for this amazing grace. But also we can use this time to put things right in our lives, a form of end of year spiritual accounts. As Jesus said in the prayer He taught us:
our Father ... Hallowed be thy name - Thy Kingdom Come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven ....
... Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us! And lead us not into temptation..
we can take this time to pray and forgive and where necessary ask for the forgivness of others.
The #10 days of Awe ... Lead to the day of Atonement
Yeshua is our high priest who is ever making intercession for us ! and has offered up His own blood ! Once and for all ! For the sins of the world ! And all who believe in Him shall be forgiven by His Atoning blood and our names are written in the Eternal book of Life ..
.yes .. For yours is the Kingdom the power and the glory .. !
This is a good time to do your spiritual accounts
A time to put things right an reflecting back on the last year !
Clearing away the wrong behaviour and not just taking advantage of the grace .. God forbid ! Romans 6:15
Isaiah 40: Evey valley shall be exalted, every mountain and hill made low, the crocked places made straight .the rough places smooth ... . That there would be a Highway for our God !
